Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-This cozy picture book illustrates the classic song. The appropriately watery, dreamy spreads flesh out the lyrics, creating a variety of side stories for readers to enjoy. When the rain starts, Grandpa, the "old man," bumps his head on a hanging flower pot and is put to bed. Meanwhile, Grandma bakes an apple pie and kids peek out from every corner of the delightful house in an indoor game of hide-and-seek. Colorful watercolors provide appealing details and perspectives, from Grandpa in bed to the hide-and-seek game and then, following the song's lyrics, to a nursery rhyme ("Hey diddle-diddle") somewhere between fantasy and reality with grandpa and one of the children. The CD features this song and two others, and the illustrations work beautifully with the haunting melody. Both the book and the recording omit the song's original verse: "Lady Bug, Lady Bug, fly away home./Your house is on fire, and your children, they will burn, They will burn." A performers' note is included.-Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MAα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

From Booklist

The ideal way to experience this book is to read it while listening to the accompanying CD, which includes songs recorded by the folk trio Peter, Paul, and Mary for their debut album. The CD contains three tracks: “It’s Raining, It’s Pouring,” “Make-Believe Town,” and “Glory of Love.” The book follows Peter, Paul, and the late Mary Travers’ nursery-rhyme tone poem precisely, as it melds together a game of hide-and-seek (Mary does the counting) with the motif of “It’s Raining,” punctuated by nursery rhymes like “Star Light, Star Bright” and “Hey Diddle Diddle.” Davenier’s lively watercolors create a rainy farmhouse scene in which, you guessed it, the old man bumps his head and goes back to bed while a little girl reads him rhymes. The action shuttles from the rhymes to the game of hide-and-seek; as a result, reading this without the musical tracks can be somewhat confusing. With the song playing, though, it’s a little bit magical. Preschool-Grade 2. --Connie Fletcher

I love the old fashioned story and who could top the additional treat of a Peter, Paul, and Mary CD??? Just delicious!! We had checked out the book from our local library and my six-year old Grandaughter loved it so much, we decided to purchase it!! We are having a wonderful time with this book, and I would encourage others to enjoy it!!

I took this book out of the library hoping that my boys would like it, and now they ask for it all day long and want to listen to it over and over. They LOVE it. They are three and almost two, and they both adore it. I have to buy it now!

Comes with the CD that has the song for the entire book. Great for a toddler that loves music, as it repeats the main part, over and over. After one day of reading it off and on, my daughter is starting to sing parts of it.

If it's Peter, Paul, and Mary, it's gotta be good. Cool that Mary's voice can still be heard singing their songs
